    Finally took the opportunity to try Assaggio! for our anniversary. I was looking for a place that would be quiet&intimate where we could relax and have a well prepared meal as opposed to the commercial chain restaurants that have taken over. Was able to make a reservation from my cell phone using Open Table that made it ultra convenient. We were there at 7 on a Saturday and were slightly surprised at how many people were there. But this place is an absolute Gem. Atmosphere was alive but not overbearing. They had live music which was perfect for the mood of a special nite out. There were no crying kids or obnoxious cell phones users, just a perfect setting. Food was fantastic from apps to dessert! Portions,Prices& service an A+ all around.

    Not being from the area, we selected this restaurant due to its close proximity to our vacation resort. We had no information, except that the menu looked very good on-line and were in "Open Table". So it was just simply good fortune that we selected one of the best restaurants we have ever experienced. Absolutely the best food, wine, service and ambiance you could hope for. The Veal Veneziana was the best!!! Our table was ready and waiting. Solo guitarist was really a nice touch. I have been to the best Italian restaurants in Philly and New York, and this place rivals them in all respects. What a find!!!

    Although a bit out of the way it is a great place for us to come from Long Beach Island to meet friends from Atlantic City, Wildwood and Cape May. The ambiance is pleasant, the food is very well prepared and the menu is interesting. Assaggio's food choices are different from most Italian restaurants. I also like the fact that you can order small versions of some items. The staff was attentive. The chef came over to see if we were enjoying our meal, which to me means then management cares about their clientele.

    The restaurant is always good, great pastas, meats, all good. The bar tender is especially good and keeps the bar happening with lively conversation. Also knows how to make perfect drinks. The staff is extremely cordial. Try their pasta trio! We frequent Assaggio and often bring guests who become new customers.

    Went for our anniversary. Food was just average not what you would expect for the price. Scallop appetizer was cold, mushroom appetizer was served way too hot to eat before it cooled down. Entree's were salmon which again was cold, the pork chop was ok. You could tell it was a family owned business as those people who were known got primo service and that left the rest of us. First and last time spending the money...wasn't impressed.

    We went to Assaggio to celebrate my Sister's wedding. What a great choice. The place was very nice. Our server, Cassie was so nice and she did a wonderful job taking care of us. The food from appetizers to entree was delicious. Portions were a nice size too. We did not leave hungry. Try the calamari and the cappalini and crab. My husband had the stuffed pork chop. It was huge and delicious. The seafood over pasta was wonderful too. Loaded with shrimp, scallops, clams and mussels. We did not have dessert as we were stuffed, but the owner brought us a plate of homemade biscotti that were out of this world. Give this place a try. You will not be disappointed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/4/2014
    I found the rather common dishes at Assaggio to be high priced, particularly because none of them included even a simple house salad. If I had to return I would order one of the tastier appetizers we tried and a nice goat cheese salad I tasted. The service was good and the proprietor was very welcoming. The atmosphere was "nothing to write home about". Had the dinner crowd been larger I am betting the noise level might have been intolerable. This is unfortunate, since I always wish for a new business to succeed, particularly when I find the owner to be hard working and amicable.

    My wife and I were apprehensive to try Assaggio. We loved it when it was Tre Figlio and assumed it would never compare. On a whim, we decided to give it a try. We are glad we did. We were promptly greeted at arrival and immediately seated. We soon noticed that the restaurant had been remodeled and the bar area expanded. The new decor had a nice relaxing feel to it. The server was prompt, attentative and was more than willing to allow me to customize my dinner selection. Dinner was great and the server kept good tabs on us throughout. Also, the owner stopped by the table to greet us and make sure everything was satisfactory. After dinner we went over to the bar where we met some regulars and had a great time. We will definatly be back!!

    The food was absolutely delicious. However, there is a long wait between salad and the main course . I experienced this twice in 6 months. The restaurant wasn't very crowded. Would have appreciated either a complimentary beverage or dessert or some recognition by the waiter for the long wait.

    Last Monday was a special event "Piano Night" advertised through emails, etc. I made a reservation for two at 7:30 p.m. through opentable. I arrived on time. The hostess escorted us upstairs to a very noisy standing room only bar area. There were several occupied dining tables throughout the room. We were told, even though we had a reservation, there was nothing available. We were told people just came in and sat down wherever they wanted. It will be a looooong time before I go back to Assagio for a "special event".

The service was excellent from the front door to the time we left and it even included a visit from the chef. We will be back and our guests from Conn visit every two years and this was the second time they ate here.

    We wanted to try a new restaurant for Easter Dinner. Assaggio was great. The owner, Mary, greeted us at the entrance. The bar area is charming and the bartender, the owner's son, was attentive and went out of his way to make us comfortable. The dinner was excellent. I had the lamb chops that looked like steaks: think and tender, with a marsela sauce. The broccoli rabe was done perfectly. My spouse had the eggplant, and we plan to return in a couple of weeks. I wanted crab cocktail and it was not on the menu, but the waiter checked with the chef and he made it for me. The chef came to our table as well. The wait staff was attentive and professional as well. We loved it. We will be back.

    A lovely spot we count on for dinner and a glass of wine. We met friends from out of town and had a fine dinner. We were heading on to another event, so we ate lightly. We enjoyed two appetizers: the broccoli rabe with sausage and the eggplant rolletini. We ended up both ordering the delicious shrimp and linguine with pesto as our entrees. Service was attentive but not hovering. A very nice experience.

    I really didn't know what to expect when we came to Assaggio. No one I knew had been here before. I bet they will now, since I've told them all about it. We went for AC Restaurant Week and each had 3 separate courses. The caponata they served with the bread was so good, we bought some to take home with us! The portions were large and each entree came with a side dish, something that some of the other restaurants we tried was lacking. The green beans and roasted potatoes were beautifully seasoned and the dijon alfredo chicken was fantastic. All the sauces and seasonings on the courses were perfect. We will be back!

    Dined here during Atlantic City's Restaurant Week. The food was good, service was fine, seating was a bit tight. As it is approximately a one-half hour drive for me, I don't know that I'd go back. My daughter had wanted the pasta trio all in blush sauce (vodka sauce) & that seemed to be a bit of a difficulty for the cook, as it came out with the three different sauces. There was nothing remarkable about the food or service, although the manager/owner did try to pick up for the over-burdened wait staff. If you're in the area, this wouldn't be a bad place to stop. Just don't make a special trip.
